CUSTOM COLOR British Cabernet and Cream Grill Cloth. 40th M/B Anniversary.

The MARK V is really a collection of amplifiers. There are far too many circuits and sounds to think of it as merely an amp. It is also a living history of Mesa. From the groundbreaking MARK I that introduced the world to high-gain with its cascading pre amp, to the Mark II - the world's first high gain Dual Mode Channel Switching amplifier and its later siblings that introduced Simul-Class power. From the MARK III that ushered in the era of 3 Channel footswtching performance, to the MARK IV which gave all this power individual control, the MARK V is the embodiment of the last 40 years of guitar amp history.

EXC condition, very minor wear. Comes with everything pictured.
